Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The homelands of the Pueblo people-New Mexico's Pajarito Plateau and middle Rio Grande Valley-are home as well to an abundantly diverse plant community that is virtually unrivaled in western North America. Plant biologist and former U.S. Park Service ecologist Dunmire and botanist/anthropologist Tierney have written a book that combines a high degree of scholarship with a delightfully accessible trail-guide approach to the traditional uses of wild plants in the Pueblo world. Wild Plants of the Pueblo Province is an important book about the region's plant life and its vital interplay with cultures. Its sturdy laminated paper cover and cloth spine provide ideal backpack durability but will equally satisfy the armchair naturalist and weekend anthropology enthusiast. Color landscape photos and individual line drawings of sixty profiled plants blend to create a book that is visually rich and absorbing while educational and useful. Winner, Border Regional Library Association Award, 1994-95

Format: Hardcover
Written with much respect towards both the preservation and privacy of American Indian plant lore, this book provides an intelligent and entertaining ethnobotanic history of the Southwest. The line drawings clearly key with the plants in their habitats, and Bill Dunmire's color photographs place the plants in typical environments.

...and besides, I'm her son.

I'm very pleased to have replaced this book that was lost! It is a very informative book for the area and was like meeting up with an old friend when I re-browsed the replacement.

Plant biologist William Dunmire and ethnobotanist Gail Tierney write on extensive research, and detail interviews with Indian elders, in this popular guidebook that combines information on native and ancient traditional uses of wild plants with contemporary uses. Wild Plants of the Pueblo Province covers the pueblo villages of the Rio Grande valley. It is a very interesting history of these people and traditions that still exist.

As a tour guide in the area that these plants are mostly present, I find this as one of the most helpful resources. I have purchased books for all my guides to study and learn.
